, the seeking of a diplomatic outcome, which i think they should do, if that fails, i think that the obama administration and president obama is going to have a decision very much like the one president bush had in 2002. right now we need to step back and think creatively. are there other scenarios that we can work that can get a good result in iran? without leaving the president of the united states where he only has two choices? go to war, or accept a nuclear- powered iran. neither of those is attractive. now is the time to think of it -- think creatively about an acceptable outcome in iran and avoid the halcyon choice. >> are you concerned about is real? >> interesting, israel has a lot at stake, but they are also an independent decision maker. they have their own interest in this and have made it clear that they are not prepared to except without some of the military action iran with a clear path to a nuclear weapon. one scenario would be for the illustration to try to engage with the iranians diplomatically. with the other countries involved in the so called p five. offering a robust
, climate change. >> ben gotti. >> and benghazi. >> i thought it was all right. they covered most of the principle stories of the day or week. wi us most struck by the difference in president obama himself. this was a more confident, relaxed, even assertive president or person than we had seen before. and he staked out his position on taxes. and, then, of course, he rolled it back. >> he was impassioned in his defense of susan rice, something we rarely see from the president. >> right. so winning another four years will do that for you. let's contrast with the loser of the election. that's mitt romney. he hasn't given any interviews or offered any positive forward statements. instead he did a conference call with donors and people were able to listen in and romney was quoted at not directly saying that president obama gave gifts to women, gays, and free contraceptives was very popular with young women. is romney really getting beat up by the press because all he has are these comments that made him look bitter? >> well, he made them. >> like the 47%. >> yeah. it reinforces that 47
for the study resolve of president obama netanyahu and the israeli people. that's my view and i always welcome yours. [applause] >> so, we're watching closely what's developing in israel right now. hamas has fired hundreds ever rockets from gaza onto the citizens of israel. this, after an israeli air strike on thursday took out a top hamas military commander. hamas warned at that israel's air strikes had quote, opened the gates of hell. so, joining me now from israeli's border from gaza, former chief of staff to benjamin netanyahu and a major in the israeli special forces reserves. thank you for joining me today. [applause] >> good to be on the so, governor. >> mike: let's talk about how this all started because i'm afraid the international media may try to describe this as israeli aggression, but this is a response to what has been a relentless assault by the hamas toward israel. >> i think your typical american doesn't know what's hang on the ground. seven years ago, israel vacated the gaza strip and handed an entire land over to the palestinians. the palestinians swarmed an independent go
not know. is there any talk about revenue spending, creating job programs. when president obama came into office, the stimulus was part of his agenda. as you look at the financial situation, is there talk of big spending right now? guest: there is talk of job training and infrastructure -- from this increased revenue. is that something congress can agree on? i think that in this climate of austerity, as people are starting to think about the deficit, i do not think we will necessarily see a large-scale stimulus like the one we have before. there is a fascinating statistic and a national journal story that they now spend $7 on programs for senior citizens and elderly people for every $1 it spends on young people. and at $1 goes to everything from education, student loans, job training. so the federal government spending at this point is really skewed towards taking care of the older population of versus helping the younger ones succeed. that'll be a tricky thing moving forward. alternately, to take care of older people you need to of younger people have a good jobs and making good wag
of medicare to extended for another decade and provide benefits immediately for seniors right now. republicans took that same money and gave tax cuts to the rich. that was a message that outside money spent a fortune to misrepresent. that is why the election of barack obama was so very important. to protect medicare -- even though we could not get the majority, we knew when he won that many of the issues, affordable care, medicare, were protected. we had a different view of what happened that day. we saw some of the members that we elective, the intellect we brought in here. it is not about quantity for us so much as the policy of leadership, the quality of our members, the ideas that they had, the talent that they bring, the commitment and dedication to a better future. we may not have the majority, we may not have the gavel, but we have the unity. we have the unity to go fourth, create jobs, build our economy, simple as abc. make it in america, build the infrastructure of america, and tax cuts for the middle-class. tax cuts for the middle-class. we can do that, prevent us from going over the
contraceptives was big with young college-age women and then finally obama-care, that was a big gift to young people and they turned out in large numbers. everything is transactional with this guy. there is absolutely no consideration whether these were the right things to do. the moral thing to do, the path of good policy at least we know he wasn't just pretending to be clueless. he seems lost and even desperate in defeat. but then there is the victor. president obama. he may have won the election but he can't retire his boxing gloves just yet. he took jabs from republicans led by john mccain and lindsay graham. they're up in arms about potential appointment of susan rice to secretary of state because of the fallout of the benghazi attacks. john mccain called those attacks the president's watergate and this morning he said rice mishandle the administration's respond. >> she's not qualified. anyone who goes on national television in defiance of the facts five days later we're all responsible for what we say and what we do. >> jennifer: he just said she's not qualified. not qualified. susan ri
and they could trust that had the right priorities from president obama to our historic numbers of democratic women. and out of the problems we test and we asked them about everything because you know how this polling goes. i'm thrilled they were thrilled to do one more poll after the election, the candidates they voted against they were really concerned those candidates were going to take us back to the failed policies of the past. they got it. they don't want to roll the clocks back. they want to move forward. and more than being wrong on any issue of debt or health care or taxes, women recognized the total "mad men" gop agenda is what they did not want and they reacted that way. i say the growth will be sustainable in years to come. we have the right agenda and we just need to keep building and talking to our women, our fellow sisters across the country and the men who stand with us because they know that together we can make a great, great difference. and with that, i think about just some of the incredible women who have done so much and we do have a couple of special guests here today a
spokesman and asked how president obama is being kept informed about the crisis. >> no crisis in the world would allow rocket fire indiscriminately into their country. we support israel's right to defend itself and, you know, have been in constant contact with them. that said we think everyone will benefit. >> what does constant contact meet? phone conversations with the prime minister? >> the president has been talking to president benjamin netanyahu daily, talked to president morrissey of egypt, to the prime minister and talking to people that have a relationship with hamas to tell them that de-escalation is in everyone's interests. this will only lead to civilian casualties. i don't mean to draw false equivalents. this started because hamas is raining rockets down into civilian populations and they have to stop. >> sounds like the president believes hamas has to basically ceasefire first. >> hamas started the conflict and they need to stop raining rocket fire down into israeli population centers. now you asked about how the president is being kept abreast. the president's national secur
to an eagerness or willingness to engage or become involved militarily in that conflict. >> all right, ben. in jerusalem this morning. thanks. >>> coming up later, soledad will be speaking to israel's deputy foreign minister. that's in our 7:00 hour. >>> here at home, president obama will have the four top leaders of congress over to the white house today to begin talks on avoiding the fiscal cliff, which could plunge the u.s. economy back into a recession. both side say there is room for compromise, but at the same time, it appears democrats and republicans may have dug in on their long-held positions concerning tax hikes and spending cuts. jill doherty is in our washington bureau. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> jill, both sides have said they are optimistic about a deal here. they're also not budging on some key issues. >> yeah, i mean, there is some room around the edges, but essentially, and this is the the opening gambit, of course. they're both talking about taxes. the president saying -- and revenue. the president saying that he wants more revenue from the wealthiest ameri
at 10:15 a.m. eastern. speaking on on cnbc thursday, the co-chairs of president obama's deficit commission alan simpson and erskine bowles say you law make are haven't been focused on what's really right for the country. >> leaders who think it would be to their advantage to go off a fiscal cliff. what a wonderful trait that is. that we can win more democrats if we let it go over, we can win more with republicans. this whole game is not about win or lose. it's about how do we make the dems lose and how do we make the republicans lose. people are sick of that and they're ashamed of if. >> if we do get our house in order, the future of america is really bright. and we can compete with the best and brightest. if we don't, we're well on on our way to becoming a second rate power. >> simpson isn't hopeful a deal will be reached before the end of the year. bowles sees a one third chance. on that optimistic note, joining us is ben white from politico. so what's it going to be, economic chaos? >> no, i think i'm at more saa more sanguine. republicans lost seats in the house and senate a

into a recession. on friday, president obama and congressional leaders sat down to start negotiations about how to avoid that cliff and came out sounding optimistic. >> and i believe that we can do this and avert the fiscal cliff that is right in front of us today. >> we've already been through it before. so on friday i went to the capitol to ask house leader nancy pelosi how realistic it is that we'll get a deal done. leader pelosi, you all came out of the meeting with the president sounding pretty optimistic, pretty confident. but you've been there before. you said in july of 2011, called your talks with the gop about a grand bargain constructive saying you were optimistic that we can find a place where we can come together. obviously those talks failed, so what's changed, and why do you believe this optimism after this meeting? >> that was then. this is now. the urgency is so much greater, so i'm optimistic because i think it's very clear the american people expect and deserve and want to see us get this job done. >> did anything that speaker boehner said make you optimistic? was it just tha
everybody's got to give to get everybody to the table. >> i think right now the key question is we know we need additional revenues for the next ten years. >> we also know we need additional spending cuts. >> and president obama has put that on the table. >> let's talk about the cuts, because joe here has talked, what did you say, you said it was 1 to 1 1/2? >> if he sticks to where he was at 1.2. >> summer of 2011 originally -- >> 1.2, no he wants 1.6 now. he's at 1.6 and we're talking about four total so that's 2.4 to 1.6 would be 1.5 to 1, when he was with boehner, 800, wanted another 4. >> you were in the room so you know. >> first of all, since we talk about bowles-simpson so much, bowles-simpson has a 1:1 ratio. >> it doesn't. >> i thought it's 1:4. >> it's 1:3. >> in the way the bowles-simpson frame was put out something people didn't realize was that in terms of the revenue number they weren't counting the expiration of the high income tax cuts which they proposed to get rid of. apples to apples, in terms of the way people are currently adding up their math, it's approximately a 1:
conversations. total game changer if hillary clinton sort of sticks to it and says i'm not running, right? >> i'm sorry, chris. say that again. >> a total game changer if hillary clinton decides definitely not to run. >> yeah, i think, as i said i think democrats are excited about what president obama has done through this election cycle and excited about the possibilities of solving problems. i don't think they're focused on the campaign in 2016. >> oh, come on, these conversations are not being had? >> all those people you mention, vice president biden was my seat made in the senate, a fabulous leader, wonderful, works wonderfully with the senate. does a tremendous job as vice president. we have a lot of great candidates on the democratic side that are possible, but i don't think they'll want to start talking about it. i think they'll want to start working hard on the problems we see that we can solve and chip says, the people will see what this next four years produces and i think democrats want to make sure that they're working in a bipartisan way to find the solutions and make these next f
to extend it for another decade, to provide benefits immediately, immediately for seniors right now. republicans took that same money and gave tax cuts to the rich, and that was the message that outside money spent a fortune to misrepresent. and that is why the election of barack obama was so very, very important to protect medicare, even the we could not get the majority. we knew what he wants, that many of the issues, affordable care, medicare, et cetera were protected. so we have a different view of what happened that day. you saw some of the members that we elected, the intellect that we brought in here. so it's not about quantity so much for us as the quality of leadership, the quality of our members, the ideas that they have, the talent they bring, that commitment and dedication to a better future. we are a solidly -- we may not have the majority and we may not have the gavel, but we have the unity, and we have unity to go forward to create jobs, to build our economy, simple as abc. american-made, make it in america. b., build the infrastructure of america. right? and c, tax c
the biggest challenge facing these guys across the street right now, particularly republicans in the house, is between now and christmas. as president obama said friday, that would give added% of americans, anybody making to under thousand dollars a year tax cut. are republicans going to allow the 98% of americans to take a tax cut or will they hold them hostage and get a continued tax cut for that 2%? this is a very clear issue and the first challenge for john boehner. 90% vs. 2%. he is -- they have sided with 2%. can he get them to give 90% of americans a tax break? if not, the republican party is in more trouble. >> ami sheree this order -- editorial saying that the republicans have no foothold in -- and little room to negotiate and the president will drive a bargain. >> it would have to say this. republicans are not dealing from strength. they were in 2010 when they elected 63 tea party freshman and i could block or pass anything they wanted. john boehner was to admit that they do not win and if they do not when you are not dealing with a position of strength. president ob
